Wifi connectivity (Treat connection as privet))

Hi there! As I am new to linux and choose Garuda as my first one.
So I have very less knowledge about linux and how it works.
My problem is that I want my wifi connection ( Mobile Hotspot ) to be treated as privet connection because I want to play Minecraft ( Tlauncher ) multiplayer through LAN and it detects other severs on same network but can't connect to it and my LAN world is not visible to other pc also. I tried to find solution to this and find that if your wifi connection is not treated as privet this problem can occurs. SO if you have a solution to this plz let me know. :grin:

Hi there, welcome!
I don't know how to solve the problem, because I use a router based network and have no problems.
I only would like to leave you a couple of (in my opinon) interesting readings on NetworkManager (the package in use for networking in your system):

https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/NetworkManager#Sharing_internet_connection_over_Wi-Fi

https://fedoramagazine.org/internet-connection-sharing-networkmanager/

Arch-based distros require study/self-learning and dedication...
Good luck!

Edit: I noticed only now that the Network Assistant has a button to create the Hot Spot, so I guess everything is installed and configured and the answer lays somewhere in the configurations.
You may want to play a Little bit with Advanced Network Configuration as well, after your hotspot is setup
